I had rented a car and was driving up the coast without any solid plans for accommodation. I was able to call the facility and request a bed for the night in the late afternoon. When arrived at about 8:30pm and went to go find my bed, the room was already fully occupied. I had to explain the situation to... More

I stayed in a 8 bed dorm, it was nice and private, the kitchen was hygienic and the bathroom was really clean. Staff are kind with cuuuuuute dogs ! The hostel is close to the town and beach, so it's perfect to stay all day here. I went surfing in the morning, then went to diamond island when the tide... More

During one of my tours we got stranded at Bicheno and this was the perfect place for it. The beds were really comfy and the place was clean and very cosy. It has everything you need and provides a high quality for visitors

I came with no reservations and the staff was friendly and helpful. I had a private room, which was very clean and comfortable. There was a huge living room with TV. The kitchen was large and well equipped. Private parking lot.

Kitchen area was perfect with lists of utensils. Great value and great location for traveling up the east coast. Bicheno has a choice of about 5 places to eat all similar price but also... More

Thin walls, smallish kitchen with one fridge in the section of the hostel I stayed in to be shared by 4 rooms. Bathroom was clean but only one toilet in that part of the hostel. The showers were good with plenty of hot water and good pressure. I think suitable for budget travellers as not much else around for the... More

Thanks for the review. You are correct, we are "just a hostel" and the $74 rate reflects this. You are also right when you say "suitable for budget travellers". We do not proclaim to be anything else. One of the bedrooms in this house has its own toilet so one toilet services 3 private rooms, which is well above what... More

We stayed in an ensuite double room, just around the corner from the main hostel. We were greeted by the manager and her two dogs who were very welcoming and allowed us to check in a couple of hours early. Free wifi is available and a communal kitchen/living area with sofas and tv. Clean, comfortable but lacking inn character.

If our rooms are ready & someone is available to check you in early, we have no problem doing so. It is nice that it was appreciated. The Shack where you stayed has only been open a short time (you probably... More

We had a really enjoyable time here. The place was really well cared for and staff at reception was so nice. The room we were in was nice and, at least while we were there, couldn't here any outside noises. Great location - could easily walk to most of the required places. They had easy parking (we were in the... More

My room contained 4 bunk beds and a heater, and that's it. My building contained 4 rooms and a shared dining/living room, kitchen and bathroom plus a small balcony with a nice view towards the sea. Everything was very clean, including the 2 showers. I can't help thinking though that I'm too old to go without my privacy, and it... More
